The OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro were recently released alongside some new features for their Android skin, OxygenOS. They include new camera modes, including a second-generation NightScape for low-light shots. However, the OEM has indicated that older flagships may not be in line for the same.

OnePlus has just unleashed its latest lines of flagships, the 7 and 7 Pro. During their launch, the OEM also unveiled some aspects of the latest version of its Android overlay, OxygenOS 9.5. This updated ROM will include an improved app that is compatible with the 7 Pro's new triple camera. 

It incorporates some new modes, including NightScape 2.0, which is intended to compete with the likes of Samsung and Huawei in the same regard. As OnePlus has developed a decent record of software updates for slightly older flagships, it may be reasonable to expect that the 6 and 6T may be getting the same treatment.

However, Android Authority claims to have secured exclusive word from the OEM that this will not be the case. Then again, these 2018 flagships will gain access to Zen Mode, a possible answer to Google's Digital Wellbeing. They - particularly the 6T McLaren Edition - may also be able to use OnePlus' latest accessories, which were also released at the 7 series launch.

These new products are the Bullets Wireless 2, OnePlus' second set of neckbuds (and not fully-wireless earbuds, as some may have expected), and the Warp Charge 30 car charger. This accessory may charge a 7 or 7 Pro to 48% in 20 minutes, as the wall charger of the same name might.
